How is your pandemic going? Ours? Well, we managed to write up this awesome blog post and then forget about it for nearly a year. That's how our pandemic is going. It's too good to just throw away, and the punch WAS really good, so one year later, here's our Most Festive Holiday Punch!
Last night we celebrated our annual holiday party (don't worry, it was pandemic safe). In past years we would treat ourselves to a nice dinner at a local restaurant and usually sip on Manhattans. This year, dinning out was not an option; instead we ordered take out from The Tornado Room (awesome restaurant in downtown Madison) and made a delicious punch.
It was so good, we couldn't not share it with you! Grab your punch bowl, recipe below.
1cup Grand Marnier
1cup brandy (Korbel... cause 'sconsin)
2 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
1quart chilled ginger ale
2 chilled 750 ml bottles dry Champagne
Directions to Perfection
In large bowl or pitcher, combine the Grand Marnier, brandy, Chambord and pineapple juice and chill covered for at least 4 hours.
In your favorite punch bowl, combine the above mixture with the ginger ale, Champagne and ice cubes if desired. Garnish punch with orange slices (if you wish, no need to be fancy if you don't want to) and serve.
